rezined as secretary of state today, and chelsea clinton tweeted this picture, grateful for my mom and the remarkable service. thankful as i share the last day as first daughter. >> we talked about many things, the accomplishments of hillary clinton. there were lighter moments today. hillary has learned to figuratively and literally let her hair down. >> hi, everybody. welcome to the state department. ♪ ♪
5:01pm
♪ >> and i particularly want to thank assistant secretary kirk campbell for driving. >> anderson cooper 360 starts now. erin, thank you. good evening, everyone. there's so much happening tonight. some of it life and death, some of it something else entirely different. the man who pretended to be manti te'o's girlfriend. he talked to phil mcgraw about why he did it and how he did it. if the voice doesn't grab you, the rest of the story will. >> also, breaking news.
5:02pm
a suicide bomber hit the u.s. embassy. you probably know ability that. we got late details about precisely what the terrorists were aiming at and who they are. we begin with another breaking story. the groying turmoil playing out on the streets of america's shaky ally, egypt. cairo tonight, the presidential palace under attack. other egyptian cities also seeing eruptions of violent. parts of the country living under a 30-day curfew. pressure apparently building on egypt's government two years after they toppled the last one. ben wedeman is in cairo tonight and joins us from there. friday is usually a big day for protests in the mideast because it's a day for prayer, in the mosques, and thaen come out and protest. >> this week, it wasn't just friday. it was all week long we had protests and clashes. we were outside of the palace, basically the egyptian white
5:03pm
house, where initially it was a peaceful demonstration, a mixed crowd of christians and muslims, religious and secular, young and old. very peaceful, but when the sun went down, those molotov cocktails started to be thrown over the walls. we saw young men firing fireworks over the wall as well. and the egyptian police eventually responding with tear gas and water cannons. i think one of the most disturbing images that's come out of there is these pictures broadcast live on egyptian tv of security forces, riot police, brutally beating a man who's naked on the ground. the ministry of the interior said they're going to investigate that incident, but as we have seen many times before, anderson, the ministry isn't very good at investigating itself. >> is there a sense -- i mean, the situation is close to some sort of tipping point? or how bad is it?
5:04pm
>> well, this has gone on longer than expected. and what we're seeing is that on the one hand, the brotherhood of which mohamed morsi is a member, are being fairly restrained in reacting to this as a group. on the other hand, the opposition doesn't seem to have any real influence on what is going on in the street. the street is beginning to lean a bit antigovernment, antimorsi movement by itself, completely out of the control of the politicians. we shall see tomorrow. there probably will be renewed clashes outside the palace, and it could very well spread to other cities in egypt. >> in the past, we have seen the military, the police kind of standing around, letting these things play out. is that what they're doing now, or are they just not able to stop it? >> you have to keep in mind, the egyptian security forces are quite large, but the individual recruits are paid the equivalent
5:05pm
of $44 a month. and they really, their heart is not in it. one of the worries at the moment is that there's already rumblings within the interior ministry, within the police, that tlhey're not happy defendig the muslim brotherhood-led government. you have to remember that the days of hosni mubarak and even before, it was the interior ministry that's pursued and persecuted and tortured and jailed the muslim brotherhood. now they find they have to take orders from them. so even though at the moment they are trying to put down these demonstrations, these riots, these clashes, they're not succeeding, and we're hearing the soldiers that recruits are getting increasingly exhausted, tired, demoralized, and their officers are unhappy doing the dirty work of the muslim brotherhood. >> dangerous days. ben wedeman, thank you very much. stay safe. >> we'll have more on the
5:06pm
turmoil shortly as well as the attack on the embassy in turkey. >> now the hostage crisis happening back home in alabama. a 5-year-old boy held captive in a below the ground bunker. held by this man, a 65-year-old vietnam vet named jimmy lee dykes. that's the first time we have gotten a look at him. he's said to be a survivalist with anti-government views. he shot and killed a school bus driver and took the boy hostage. victor blackwell is in midland with details. you learned today that the suspect may have met the bus driver before. what do you know about that? >> that's right, anderson. we know this could come down to the road and the bus. gueye know, as you said, that jimmy lee dykes, this 65-year-old man we see, was described as being 6 feet tall, about 170 pounds. a man who was not well liked in this community. we're told by neighbors he has a history of shouting at anyone
5:07pm
who or anything that crosses onto his property line, even the animals. actually, he was supposed to be in court on wednesday for allegedly shooting at a neighbor. the neighbor says that somehow he damaged dikes' road, and dykes fired a shot at him. that was supposed to be on wednesday, but we know by wednesday, dykes and this kindergartner had been in this bunker for some time. we want to show you the bunker, the lay of the land. this is a description based on a description by the neighbor. you see the trailer. that's where he lives. next to it, a red container for storage. and then the bunker. 10 to 12 feet high with cinder block steps along the side and bricks lining the walls. there's no mortar because this thick, red, alabama clay keeps everything together, and because he was a survivalist, we do not know how long he can stay in this bunker, but we're told, the good news here, there's no reason to believe that this boy has been harmed.
5:08pm
now, you asked about the relationship between dykes and this victim, charles poland. we're told that, again, it comes down to the road and the bus. and the bus ended its route every day at the end of the road that leads up to jimmy lee dykes' property. listen to a friend, robert smith. >> anti-government. you know, mentality, he just considered a school bus or anything dealing with the government a threat. they were infringing on his rights, his property. when the tire got on his land, that was his. >> what kind of guy was charles poland, the bus driver? >> well, smith has known him for 20 years. he says when you saw him, he always had a warm smile. he was first in service to his family and to god, but also, he didn't want anyone to be angry with him, and he didn't hold a grudge, either. >> i understood he took him some eggs and homemade jelly.
5:09pm
and chuck was the type of guy, right now, if chuck were alive, he was the type of guy, he would be praying for that guy and being over trying to help him. he didn't hold nothing against anybody. he was that kind of a guy. >> again, this was, as we're told by his friend, charles poland's effort to try to end this feud with the owner of that road. jimmy lee dykes. we know his funeral will be on sunday, and we're told so many people are expected, it could not be held in a church here in town. that it actually has to be held in a physics center a few miles away. >> sounds like a very sweet guy. victor, there's been communication between authorities and this guy, dykes. how are they communicating? >> yeah, it's a really bizarre s setup. we're told there's a pvc pipe that is more than 30 feet long that goes from the road all the way down into the bunker. and that they speak through this
5:10pm
pipe. again, we've been told there's no reason to believe the boy has been harmed, but there have not been many more details beyond that. local law enforcement has been keeping all of the details very close to the vest, but we know there is that pipe through which they're communicating. >> i appreciate the update. we're going to check back in if the situation changes. joining me now is joshua tucker who lives nearby and byron sage. josh, your grandmother lives right across the street from jimmy lee dykes. what kind of guy is he? can you explain what he's like? >> he's not the type of typical human being you would see normal. he would always come out late nights, shooting his gun at random hours, walking on his bunker at random hours of the night also. >> shooting his gun at random hours? >> yes, sir. ran it out on odd hours of the night. >> i understand he threatened to kill your dog at one point. >> yes, sir, he did. my grandmother lives right in front of him.
5:11pm
he threatened my nana because my dog went into his yard. it was my dog we gave to my grandmother, and he threatened to kill my dog. >> were you scared of this guy? >> after that, yes, because it kind of frightened me because he threatened to kill. and then we went over there to talk to him about it, and he got ill about it. and just not normal human being. >> you've been up to the house. and i know your aunt knew him, was at his home when you went to get her. what could you see? what was it like inside, could you tell? >> like, it was all junked up. it was not like a normal human being's house. it was very odd, very cluttered up. and just not even livable for a human consumption. >> did you know he had this bunker? was that kind of commonly known? >> we did not know at the time, but we kept hearing him at odd hours of the night working on this bunker. >> wow, byron, you're a former hostage negotiator, hearing what josh just said, what do you do
5:12pm
as a negotiator because it's not like -- i imagine, trying to get into the bunker is a difficult thing, so your options are limited. i know before when we talked a couple days ago, you said it's all about patience and you hope time is on the day of the negotiators, but what do you make of it? it's now day four here? >> it's difficult without having direct insight into the nature of the dialogue between the negotiation team and mr. dykes, but i'm quite confident from what i understand that the team itself is a joint team. it's not just fbi. it's also made up of local, county, and state officers, negotiators that will have -- be able to provide insight into the type of personality and individual they're dealing with. >> i would imagine that's particularly important with a guy who, you know, supposedly, he has so-called anti-government views, whatever that may mean. i assume if you're from the
5:13pm
federal government, he's going to be hostile our suspicious, so local authorities would probably be better to kind of have that dialogue. >> that's true. you wouldn't want to stress the fact that you're dealing, you know, when they introduce themselves, i'm sure they introduce themselves by name instead of by agency. if he asks, you don't lie to the individual because that could come back and just totally undercut your credibility, but the fact of the matter is, i'm absolutely confident what they have done is they have identified a cadre of negotiators that have such a span of experience and possibly fellow vets, that can establish a rapport or have a level of understanding that they can start to build on. this is now day four. i am quite certain that they have made significant inroads and trying to establish common
5:14pm
areas that they can build upon, and at the same time, identify issues that are what we call hot button issues, such as encroachment on his property and other things that he's obviously quite sensitive to. >> and byron, what happens to -- i mean, you have a situation where you have this little boy who has been in this basically room with this guy now for days. in past instances that you have been with, what happens between the hostage taker and the hostage? we have heard about stock home syndrome, things like that, do you have any insight of what goes on between two people in this kind of a case? >> this is -- this is actually a very positive thing. there's no indication whatsoever there's been any injury to the child. by this time, the 5-year-old
5:15pm
is -- has established a bond with this individual. whether intentional or unintentional, there's -- you can't live, two human beings in that proximity to one another, without beginning to recognize and appreciate characteristics in one another. and that's huge. it's called transference. it's not something you intentionally do. it's something that just humans do when they're in that close proximity to one another for an extended period of time. >> and another reason they find on the side of the negotiators, the longer, i guess, the better without any kind of violence. byron, i appreciate your expertise, and joshua tucker, thank you very much. >> let us know what you think. follow me on twitter. i'll be tweeting about this. a lot more happening, including breaking news in the tear rstz attack against americans overseas. we have late details from our
5:16pm
own fran townsend. she has details about how the bombing may have been planned, and we'll talk to bob beahr about the group believes to be behind it. >> athe rebuilt superdome doesnt tell half the story of new orleans's rebirth. we'll introduce you to one woman who had plenty of reasons to stay away forever. instead, she's back, she's home, and you'll want to see why. we'll be right back.

5:20pm
breaking news out of cairo. clashes at the presidential palace. riot police came, armored personnel carriers surrounded the area. burning tents protesters had set up, beatings in the seat. all of this after a week of violent protests across the country. it's already claimed 50 years. this is two years after they drove hosni mubarak out of power. >> and also, in turkey, targeting americans. it happened in the turkish capital. a suicide bomber striking just outside the embassy killing a turkish guard and himself, wounding several others. what distinguishes him from so many others is what was not involved. this is not the work of jihadist killers. and word coming from fran townsend, working her forces. our usual disclaimer, she also serves on the cia advisory
5:21pm
board, also with us, bob baer. fran, you have new information about the attack. what is it? >> what we know, anderson, is the attack happened on an outer perimeter check point. what we have now learns from law enforcement officials and sources working the investigation is this outer check point happened to be a walkway for embassy employees and their guests. that now makes more sense, anderson. the ambassador acknowledged the woman who has been injured, a journalist who was a friend of his, was coming to meet him for tea. law enforcement officials say this female entered the perimeter check point, and the man, the suicide bomber comes in behind her and that's when he detonates his device. he was carrying a bag, a law enforcement official said. they're still trying to determine whether or not the device was on him or in that bag, but that's when it was detonated. this is an individual, by the way, anderson, who was known to foreign and u.s. intelligence officials for his affil jaiatio
5:22pm
with this marxest group. >> there's often kind of a gate house that is manned by local security personnel, in this case, turkish personnel, not by u.s. marines. those are kind of the first people, the first wave of security you go through nowadays when you go to an embassy. they search you, there's a metal detector and the like, and they figure out why you want to i enter. you said earlier it sounded like the security fail safe of the embassy may have worked like they were supposed to. based on what's you have learned since then, do you think that's still the case sdm. >> we do. as tragic as it is that we have a loss of life, you have these outer check points so that you hope the further away from the embassy you'll catch an individual who is trying to penetrate with an explosive device. that's exactly what happened here. unfortunately, you had turkish security guards who lost their li lives, but what didn't happen is that vinyl wasn't able to get
5:23pm
that device inside the embassy, closer to our ambassador. >> and bob, you visited this embassy before. this was no benghazi. this was a major embassy. >> it's well protected. americans have been under attack in turkey for decades. an outer perimeter is meant to screen the visitors. they go through a mental detector. the marines look at that entry with closed circuit tv cameras to see who is coming in. it's long distance, they call, standoff, between there and the embassy, and security did work. this is the way embassies are usually constructed. >> fran, as you mentioned, this marxist, lennonest terrorist group, could a group like that pull a sophisticated attack like this without outside help? >> i think so, anderson. look, they pulled off attacks targeting policemen in turkey, tour stzs. they have done these for a long period of time, as i mentioned,
5:24pm
going back to the mid-1970s. they have organizations, but we should remember, just because we have identified the bomber and the group he's affiliated with, they do have outside affiliations. they are known to have affiliations inside syria with iranians, so the inquiry is only just beginning. this may have sort of a longer tail in terms of the story. >> we were talking to ben wedeman about what is going on in cairo and throughout egypt. there are already a lot of potential flash points. do you think this embassy attack may be a sign of the dysfunction in syria spreading? do you think this is related to syria? >> anderson, absolutely. you know, these small leftist parties in turkey, a lot of them ended up in damascus. they have close connections with syrian intelligence. right now, syria would like to spread the chaos, to let the world know it's not localized, it's not a question of just getting rid of bashar al assad.
5:25pm
if some peace agreement isn't reached quickly, it's going to spread to turkey and jordan and lebanon. i think the turkish police right now will be looking for a syrian connection. you know, a lot of explosives are coming up into turkey. the turks themselves are very nervous. i just talked to some opposition members. syrian opposition, and they said the turks have started to cut off weapon supplies going into syria because the situation is out of control, and it looks like syria is going to break up. and sending more weapons in the country will have undetermined consequences. >> fran, do you agree this could be linked to syria? >> absolutely, anderson. my understanding is that's what investigators are looking at now. one of the critical things, you know, now that there's not been a u.s. citizen killed, the fbi won't lead the investigation. they'll work closely. they'll offer bomb technicians and expertise to the turks. one of the key questions will be to understand what explosive was used because that's one of the ways, as bob can tell you, you
5:26pm
will trace back to a group based on the weaponry used. >> fran, i appreciate you being on. bob as well. for more of the stories, go to cnn.com. >> the super bowl returning to new orleans for the first time since katrina. seven years after the storm, many who fled have come back. denise couldn't say why after losing her mom to katrina, why she can't imagine living anywhere else than the great city of new orleans. >> and later, ronaiah tuiasosopo pretended to be manti te'o's girlfriend for years. dr. phil mcgraw asked him to prove that he left the messages for manti te'o. we'll let you decide if it's really his voice.

5:30pm
well, the man at the center of the manti te'o fake girlfriend hoax has now told his side of the story in an
5:31pm
interview with dr. phil mcgraw, telling him he pretended to be te'o's girlfriend for years, creating her out of thin air after hijaking the identity of a high school class mate. she had no idea until a couple weeks ago. in his first interview since the story broke, tuiasosopo told dr. phil he acted alone and he ended up falling in love with manti te'o. >> were you in love with him? >> i mean, yeah. if i had pretty much had this escape of lennay, and this is where my heart had pretty much invested not just time but all of my energy went into this. as twisted and as confusing as it may be, yeah, i cared for this person. i grew feelings. i grew emotions that i sooner or
5:32pm
later, i couldn't control anymore. >> are you gay? >> honestly, if you look at this situation and look at everything that i have been through in this, of course, yeah, you would think, i would say yeah, i am gay, but honestly, i'm so confused. i'm so lost, and i'm just finding me in this whole experience. >> what you know is you did have romantic feelings for another man? >> yes. >> he told dr. phil the hoax was an escape for him from a painful secret he had hidden for years. the secret was starting at the age of 12, he was repeatedly molested and raped by someone in his family. you may wonder why anyone should believe a guy who has proved he was a liar. dr. phil asked tuiasosopo to prove that his voice was the voice on the voice mails. he agreed to read the voice mails behind a privacy screen. he said he didn't feel comfortable reading them on
5:33pm
camera. you're going to hear first one of the voice mail messages that te'o received, and then you'll hear touhy uiasosopo reading th behind the screen in a woman's voice. >> i'm just calling to say good night. i love you. i know you're probably doing homework with the boys or grubbing. what a fatty. i just want to say i love you and good night, and i'll be okay tonight. i'll do my best. yeah, so get your rest and i'll talk to you tomorrow. i love you so much, hun. >> i'm calling to say good night and i love you. i know you're probably doing homework or with the boys or grubbing, what a fatty. but i just want to say i love you. and good night, and i'll be okay tonight. i'll do my best, yeah, so get your rest and i'll talk to you tomorrow. i love you so much, hun. sweet dreams. >> you can decide that the voice is the same. dr. phil wasn't convinced.
5:34pm
he had him read the voice mail from home and watched him make the call. >> i'm just calling to say good night. i love you, and i know you're probably doing homework or with the boys, or grubbing, fatty, i just want to say i love you and good night, and i'll be okay. i'll be okay tonight. i'll do my best. yeah, so get your rest and i'll talk to you tomorrow, and i love you so much, hun. >> to me, it sounded like the same voice. dr. phil said that the three voice analysts who heard the last recording said that tuiasosopo's voice matched the one in the original voice mail. so again, you can judge for yourself. from manti te'o's perspective, the interview backed up his story that te'o was not part of the hoax in any way other than just being duped by it. tim burke broke the story for deadstin. i was kind of fascinated by this interview, and i didn't believe this guy ronaiah could actually
5:35pm
do a woman's voice passably for so long on the phone. then when you hear it, it sounded like him. what do you think? >> evening, anderson. well, kudos to dr. phil for, you know, his magisterial use of the television medium, and building this specter of doubt for days that ronaiah either couldn't or wouldn't do the voice that we heard on those voice mails that were provided by manti te'o, only to spring it on us at the end that wow, amazingly, he could. whether it really is the same voice you hear is sort of up for debate. dr. phil's analysts say yes, but if you listen, you might hear some things that are significantly different in them. >> you broke the story. you were skeptical of te'o. now you have seen the interview, heard ronaiah do the voice. do you believe that te'o was not involved in the original hoax? >> i certainly think that if you buy even half of what ronaiah is telling, and that requires a
5:36pm
leap of faith, frankly, given how long he's been telling these lies, and executing this hoax. you sort of have to assume that manti te'o, his involvement was minimal insofar as at least, ronaiah said it was manti who initiated the conversation by adding the lennay kekua character on facebook. other than that, it's really tough to say that manti had any sort of active involvement, but that again, requires you to believe two people who have admitted a lie. >> what surprised you most about the interview? >> well, certainly the fact that ronaiah claims that manti te'o dumped lennay kekua and actually told her that he didn't ever want to talk to her again, and that's what sparked ronaiah tuiasosopo to kill off the character. and that they had a conversation about this hours before she allegedly died. that shows a lot of doubt on
5:37pm
manti te'o's version of things, especially if you want to believe he was saying that she was the love of his life, et cetera, hours after he dumped her. or that a reasonable person could have a normal conversation with someone and then believe that they were sick enough to die of leukemia hours later. all of those things are kind of surprising to me but really intriguing at the same time. >> it certainly does seem like manti te'o played up his relationship or feelings for this person in the media for i guess his own benefit. where want to play a clip of ronaiah tuiasosopo apologizing to manti te'o today. let's listen. >> i can never express how sorry i am for everything. i know i put you through a lot. i'm just very sorry for everything. not just affecting you and hurting you but hurting your family. i know the depth of the pain i caused and i pray you can forgive me. >> he obviously seems to be very confused person about his
5:38pm
sexuality and a whole bunch of things. do you think now this is done, i mean, as far as i'm concerned, it seems pretty done, but you broke the story. you know it better than anyone. >> the first night we talked, anderson, that wednesday night, i said as soon as these statements started coming out, our chance at really truly finding the facts and the truth were slipping away. i think that we have come to the end of what both manti te'o and ronaiah tuiasosopo are going to say what happened and i doubt we're going to get many more facts out of it because of that. his little apology on camera, that's more television magic. right? we know that ronaiah already apologized in person or at least on the telephone to manti te'o. so he didn't really need an on-camera apology dpeexcept for anyone in his family or anyone hadn't explained the hoax. >> thank you. it's a long, sad, bizarre story. i appreciate you being on. a lot more happening

tonight. susan hendricks is here. >> hillary clinton said good-bye today, stepping down as secreta secretary of state, leaving a leg aacy of 30 years of public service. she said she's more optimistic today about our world than four years ago. >> so next week, i would expect that all of you will be as focused and dedicated for secretary kerry as you have been for me. and that you will continue to serve president obama and our nation with the same level of professionalism and commitment that i have seen firsthand. >> she is talking about senator john kerry, sworn in today as the nation's 68th secretary of state. daughter chelsea was there, too, tweeting a photo with her mom. the caption reading, thankful i shared her last day, hash tag
